of the world when it comes to technology, innovation, natural resources, and finance. you are the only thing standing in our way. you are our ball and you are our chain. like today dow rallies 40 points, s&p gained .33%, nasdaq .52%. whether it's the ceos of the honeywells or the smallest of the small. tonight's guest of lumber liquidators, they're mean-spirited debates, the pledge is not to raise taxes, it's costing this nation a once in a lifetime opportunity to reassert itself as the leader of the free world. and faster growing the repressive communist world to boot. you are in the ability to give us a deal, any deal is crushing our economy. allow me to explain. since i read @jimcramer on tw twitter people say i'm biased. i believe that the compromise that all the common sense people are looking for, some combination of spending cuts, higher taxes and pro-growth initiatives doesn't come into play anymore in washington. too many pledges, too much ideology. i l am part of the 2% that's going to have to pay more. i have the highest effective tax rate possible, 48% for a variety of reasons. b
,003 and change. the nasdaq continues lower. you can blame apple. technology suffering as a result today, down 12 points right now at 2977. the s&p is up 2.25 points at 1416. with less than an hour to go in the trading week, another week without a deal to avoid going over the fiscal cliff. while today's positive jobs report did give markets a boost early on, it wasn't enough to get a significant rally going and to continue it on. so what's it going to take to get some conviction back in this market? >> that's in today's "closing bell" exchange. gentlemen, great to have you joining us here on "closing bell." i think bill pretty much cede it. what is it going to take to get conviction back in this market? i kind of know the answer, but i want to hear you guys say it. give it a crack, jim. >> clarity. i think some kind of clarity as to what tax rates are going to be in a mere 3 1/2 weeks. so that we can start is making some kind of plan. right now the market's on hold. we're all waiting. >> do we need just a plan, or does it have to be a good plan, jim? >> i think a good plan would obviously be a be
doesn't mean automatic recession, and michael gibbs says it's time to get out of technology. let's start first with mark at the cme. mark, dwi us some color from the trading floor as we hear all these fiscal talks continue. the market sells off, ends the day in the red, the dow below 13,000. where do we stand as far as what markets believe are going to happen here at the end of the year? >> well, i think what you saw today was hoo when we don't have a catalyst, these important technical levels matter. so we actually topped out right at the s&p 500's 50-day moving average, right around 1421. then that ism data came out, and we eased off that. so this morning before the market, decent catalyst, nice international economic news. then we look like we've got a shot at breaking that 50-day moving average. negative catalyst comes out, we ease right off that technical level. so i think until we see some real, some real news either on fiscal cliff or possibly nonfarms on friday, we're going to have a tough time breaking that 1421 level. on the downside, you're going to see some resistance at 1400
